10 months later...
Dec 4, 2008
I had a miscarriage in Feb... at the time I was approximately 2-3 months along. I remember the pain being so unbearable I couldn't move during most of it (and this is saying a lot coming from me-i've been ejected from a car on the highway before-pretty high pain tolerance) When it happened I went to the hospital and the doctor did mention a D and C but she said that because I was so early in my pregnancy that it shouldn't be needed and that everything would be able to pass naturally. I was 18 at the time and the trauma was a lot for me to handle, I never even went back for a checkup because I couldn't bear a reminder of what had happened. Now... 10 months later... I'm worried because I'm still going through a lot of pain. When I have my period I still get small clots similar to what I had during the miscarriage (less extreme) and sharp pain in my back, my lower abdomen, as well as the right and left side where I can feel my ovaries... the pain is so bad that I can't sleep and end up tossing,turning,pushing and massaging where it hurts, and crying all night. Plus headaches and neck pain- but not much different then what could be expected with that time of the month. The most alarming thing is that there have been 3 instances since then, either during or before my period, where I feel as if I'm going to pass out: my eyesight blurs into this "bright/white vision", my breathing speeds up, I feel sick, lightheaded, and I have to sit down with my head between my knees and wait for it to go away.

I realize I should be seeing a doctor... but my situation is a little rough right now. My yearly income comes from some Real Estate, and I'd like to get another job on top of it but I can't because I know that there will be several days where I couldn't go into work because of the pain... So I'm barely making enough to get by... and I don't have any sort of insurance or family to help out. I don't think I could afford a D and C if thats what I need - how much would one cost without insurance?

I'm hoping for some reassurance that I'm not seriously hurting myself by prolonging this. It might be another year before I'm able to do anything.
Also, I've read that some clotting and pain can occur after a miscarriage but haven't come across anything to this severity (but who in their right mind waits so long before going to a doctor, right?) Could there be something else going on that I'm not aware of?
Any suggestions, answers, opinions, ect would really be appreciated. Thanks.
